This past weekend was quite the busy one, with shoots and creative collaborations filling up my Saturday and some fun in the sun with the @instabikerides fam being down in the mother city for an instaride, and boy, oh boy did I get to feeling like a kid again.

Some of you may be scratching your head wondering “what is this instaride of which you speak”… well you may have heard of instawalks, and this is basically the same concept, only we cruise around on bicycles. It had been years since I last rode a bicycle, I don’t have one, but that didn’t stop me from joining in the fun with the awesome Up Cycles team being there to loan some out – I won’t lie, I had no idea these guys even existed and at such great rates, it had me wondering what rock I’ve been stuck under!

Anyway, the weather was great, turnout was amazing, and it took me a hot minute to get the hang of the back-pedal brake situation on this new-age bicycle, but once I got it, there was no stopping me… and I was cruising through the Sea Point Promenade with my sunnies, feeling like the member of some uber cool fash pack lol.. #dontjudgeme


An awesome time was had, with both old and new friends, pretty pics were taken and the best part being that it was all while doing something out of the ordinary and though I can still feel the pain in my calves, I would go back and do it all again.

Follow @instabikerides on instagram, their going national so check out when there will be one of these happening near you.

    I absolutely love the #instabikerides concept. It’s a petty I was out of town on that day and Oh, by the way I can’t ride a bike! #pleasedontjudgeme
